Whether you're here to learn about bringing your child or yourself to our faith, let us first say welcome, and congratulations!
Adults who wish to become Catholic do so through a process known as Rite of Christian Initiation. For infants and young children, baptismal services are held on the first and third Sunday of each month at 12:15pm in church, following the 11:00am Mass. You must be a registered parishioner and make arrangements for the baptism at least one month in advance by contacting or visiting the parish office. The fee for a baptism is $50.
First-time parents and parents new to our parish must attend a baptismal preparation meeting on the third Tuesday evening of any month prior to the baptism. These meetings are held in the parish center; there is no cost but please pre-register with the business office (773.631.4127) in advance. Godparents are encouraged to attend the preparation meeting as well.
Baptism is a sacrament of initiation and along with Holy Communion and Confirmation, are the foundation on which the rest of our life as a Christian depends.
